The letter, from the Quakers and addressed to Congress, is prefaced with: "The people called Quakers, in America, having been long impressed with a sense of the iniquity of the Slave Trade, at length enjoined the members of their society to liberate all such as they held in bondage..." with the lengthy letter focused on this point (see).
